    I don't recall speculating either way on the camera. In the link you gave, if you look at post #33, you will see I said I disagree, and that the info in post #32 was incorrect. Later, KevinB posted, and you'll see that the info in post #32 was incorrect in atleast one way. I'm just trying to be clear, not trying to be a ***** or anything. Especially considering the possible consequences.
    Yeah, you never said one way or another on the camera. I for one wasn't sure which was true, the camera, memory or release date. I know Kevin has said 3.2 MP and he's pretty reliable but I haven't ruled out different builds floating around which is what J_MC eluded to.

    We should all just get along for goodness' sake. Most of us are slightly more obsessed with phones than the general public, but such vicious enmity is ridiculous. It's still just a phone, and we are still ONLY online. It is unnecessary and quite sad to be getting angry with someone over the computer. I feel that half the people on both of these websites sit slamming on their keyboards (computer or Blackberry) with anger. No one deserves this phone more than anyone else, and saying so is a little highminded and pompous. I don't believe you meant it in such a manner, matrix, but please don't let excitement for this phone turn into other negative emotions. Sorry for being offtopic.

    Firstly, indeed CX is an asset! A great deal of thanks as I've read through several forums and threads your posts always help keep the sanity and topic info coming. Secondly and perhaps no one knows, is there any chance of RIM laying out 3,4, or 5 phones at the event?

    That could be a possibility. RIM does have a ton of new devices coming out most likely before 2009. I hoping to see some more info on the CDMA version Javelin...I think its called Niagara? Am I right here Crucial?

    A question......if the Storm where to be announced at CTIA, would the price be announced also? Or would this still come at a later time like right before launch?

    This is NOT a prediction!!! You all know I'm pretty decent with the information, this is only grumblings. From a very informed source I might add. But in NO way is a prediction. I have until today heard Oct 8th. I today, heard the same thing from someone else. I'm not saying it's coming on the 8th. Just don't be surprised if it does.
    Hey man, I'd like to believe you, but I dont know. There is a VZW rep on HOFO saying otherwise. Here is what he said:

    I am a verizon wireless agent, who has been lurking this thread now for the last two months in anticipation. Here are a few thoughts I have on this.


    Since I'm not in the office, I can't double check, but don't the new Verizon rebates expire on 10/13? This would mean the absolute soonest they could launch this phone would be 10/14. (Before you all flame me for being incorrect, I can't remember if they expire 10/12 or 10/13.
    Also, Never in my 3 years of selling Verizon have I ever seen a phone launch on the first day of the new rebate pads. Big red likes to make sure everyone has their rebates in and ready to go before they launch something.
    Now, this could mean a longer delay on the phone than 10/13, OR this could be Big Red's attempt at a flat price without mail in rebate like the Iphone. (obviously NE2 would still come into play)
    Take from that what you will.

    I wish people would stop using mail-in-rebate as an indication of a phones release date. We've seen this be wrong so many times in the past and it will be no different now and in the future.

    This is been the most closely guarded launch ever for VzW and I don't think they would want to let any word out, especially via a mail-in-rebate. Also, who cares about the expiration dates for the form - I think it would be fairly easy for them to edit this document for the Storm's release date. For all we know the phone could be launching this week and they can still come out with a new rebate.

    Hey man, that sounds good to me, I was just relaying a message along. I hope they release it this week, but I highly doubt it because of the supposed ad campaign by RIM for this phone. They need to get the hype train chugging before they can release the Storm.

    Nothing against you Stang, but it seems like in so many pre-release threads someone always brings up the MIR and it has almost no bearing on the release. There have been multiple times when phones would be on the form months prior to the launch.

    Also, they guy who posted that was an agent of VzW. If there is anyone less reliable than a VzW store rep, its definitely an agent.

    I think we'll definitely see stuff about the Storm at CTIA. Numerous sources have said that phones will be handed out to the press. 0mie claims they are in transit right now...how he knows that, I have no idea.

    Just because the phones will be there does not mean they will be for public view or an announcement.

    Press kits may indeed have been sent out (maybe 0mie got some information from Ms. Cleo's hotline) but the editors/reviewers can also be under a NDA until the phone is released.

    I am just as excited as you and everyone else, but I am trying to set myself up to not be so disappointed if it isn't released at CTIA.

    All employees received a reminder email on Friday regarding this upcoming week.

    Any idea when the NDA will be lifted? At CTIA? When its released? And Crucial, the fact that you said "Oh how true this is" scares me because that makes me think that the phone is not going to be shown there.

    The Agreement isn't lifted until release. I'm not trying to scare you, just trying to make the point that it's not guaranteed to happen. I wish I could tell you.

    Hmm...now, does that mean you don't know if they'll show the Storm? Or you just can't tell me? I hope you're not setting me up for a disappointment because then this thread would have been made for nothing lol

    Must you remind us that you have the device and the pleasure of powering it on and using it!! Even if its not announced this week the only thing I really hope for is an idea (hopefully a picture) of the home/main menu screen and/or the unlock screen!

    Even if there is no announcement this week the marketing campaign should be starting soon.

    I didn't say make the thread. Look Kevin said it will be there. And units will be handed out. That doesn't mean it will be publicized though. And it's that I can't not that I won't or don't know.

    You'd think, but then again, you'd thought that would have already been out by now. As you see, this is serious. As are the consequences, lol.

    All a marketing campaign means is that the phone and its name will be announced. They can go so many ways with introducing some hype. Although this is a RIM device I remember VzW's "Next" campaign last year where they "introduced" new devices, but only had a shadow picture of them until their release - hopefully something like this doesn't happen here, but its always a possibility.
